Today I went for a trip to Whipsnade Zoo, the largest in the UK, and one that’s only a 15-minute drive from my house. It was a very cold and windy day, so as you’d expect, most of the animals were inside, and not particularly that active. I didn’t pay for entry though, as I had some free tickets that would expire at the end of this month, so I had to use them.

The best animals we saw was the African Hunting Dogs. They make some unusually high-pitch squeaks, and we made it just in time to see them tear apart from what I heard was a leg of an Antelope. If you want to experience that for yourself, I’ve put a two-minute video of it on YouTube.

After that, my family came round my house for a drink, and we somehow ended up watching Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2.

I then cooked some Teriyaki flavoured chicken and rice for dinner, and me and my girlfriend ended up watching the second half of The Social Network. I’m not a fan of Facebook now, but the early days portrayed in the movie seemed pretty cool!
